In addition to the injuries we already know about, they'll now be without Collie (http://twitter.com/Adam_Schefter/status/28051167428), Clark (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=5711117&campaign=rss&source=NFLHeadlines), and punter, McAfee (http://www.google.com/hostednews/afp/article/ALeqM5jexmW4uolV-4MCET3BmRKxWKpy7Q?docId=CNG.be1430cf7ec438b63479d0 e3742332c8.a01).

I know it's in Indy and it's Manning, but we shouldn't have any excuses.

If our OL can do what the did the first week and we run the ball and grind out the game and not give Manning a lot of time on the field, we should record our first ever win @Indy.

Reggie Wayne for 407,332,746 yards and 2,274 TDs if we stick with soft zones all day. I would think that one would decapicate the wounded but we're just too yellow to instill the white light into their eyes. I'm sure Kub-biak couldn't be prouder of them good kids.

As I've said, as long as Manning is drawing breath Indy is a tough team. Period. As far as being better coached, well yeah, I'm not a big fan of our coaching staff either. But our offense is nothing to be toyed with.

We shall see. As has been said a billion times already in lots of threads, the Houston Jeckel and Hydes are a difficult team to predict. I predict nothing except that if Houston DOES show up, it ain't gonna be an easy game for Indy at all. You just never know with these Texans...........

If Manning's playing with 10 Pop Warner players, we're not out of the woods. That being said, Manning can do nothing if his ass is on the sideline. Our offense has to take Manning out of the game, something our defense hasn't done to anyone for a full game this season.

Foster and Ward need to have career games. And time of possession needs to be lopsided towards us.

The Dolphins did that to perfection last year and Manning still beat them.

From a Titan fan I agree with man others. As long as Peyton is taking the snaps, they're dangerous. Hell he makes nobodies like Brandon Stokely (gone), Pierre Garcon, Austin Collie etc. relevant WRs. That says it all. They line up a WR with marginal talent and Manning finds a way to get him the ball and make it hurt. We only have 12 years of film to prove the point.

Any 'ol "10-6" may not get you into the playoffs. We have 5 more
division games, and head-to-head matchups against the Ravens and Jets.
Tiebreakers matter, and any 'ol 10-6 may not cut it.

The Jets, Dolphins, Patriots, Steelers, Colts, Chargers, and Titans
could ALL go 10-6. Can't rely on record alone, Tiebreakers matter, and playoffs are
MANDATORY this season for Kubiak and his staff.

If recent history is an indicator, look for the Texans to fold on Monday Night.
Every time expectations and stakes were HIGH, the Texans have a 100%
loss rate. The playoffs start after the bye, because every potential
loss could keep you out of the playoffs due to who you're playing.

i cant see that happening given how shitty our D has been. imo thats been the best thing about the first 6 weeks- we'r 4-2 despite playing crap for long stretches. if we had been dominating teams id have the same concerns as you but the D has been terrible & the offence knowing they'll HAVE to to 35-ish pts to win should mean a focused team shows up in indy

If you say so....

DexmanC
10-21-2010, 07:56 PM
i take your pt but the NE game last yr was a high stakes game that they came through in

The games I'm referencing started after Buffalo, and ended after the
second Jacksonville game. The stakes were highest then, because
winning them would have GUARANTEED a playoff spot without
"wishing" teams that clinched would still play balls-out against
the Jets.

The Patriots game had high stakes for the Texans, none for the Patriots.
Bill had most of his key veterans out of the game, and tinkered around
with his QB throughout much of the game. The stakes are highest when
BOTH sides have everything to lose.

That stretch of games after Buffalo and until the second Jacksonville game
sank the Texans last year, and they were playing for a "cosmetic touch" after that
point.

...and we all know it. Blaming the Colts and Bengals for taking it easy on
the Jets is lame. The Texans had their chance (or 5 of them) and blew it.

Give me six of the next eight, Texans. All those teams are direct competition
for a playoff spot, and both sides have everything to lose. I'll believe
the Texans are "for real" if they take the playoffs away from the teams
we're about to face.

We also need for two teams to lose their final game of the season as well as hoped that NE benches as many people as they can. That isn't what I call much of a chance and certainly not the "nail in the coffin" game that we needed. Of the seven losses... pick one and that right there instantly makes the Pats game worth a damn.

The Patriots game was great and a shuffle-forward but it certainly wasn't a battle for "King of the Mountain."

I guess a glimmer of hope...

Dex, how recent the history? Just MNF or opening day, or the most recent? I can't speak for anyone other than myself but tailgaiting with the Blue Crew and JB and a bunch of other folks before the Colts game my expectations were really, really high. I guess the only thing at stake was leaving Reliant that day 1 and 0 or 0 and 1. For that day it was a 100% win rate. I was pleased, so that's at least once that statement is incorrect, at best. And it's not like to say the opening day win can't be a win to take the division.

I agree that the season starts on MNF in Indy. I believe this team has as good of a chance to win as Indy. Enough said already on the defense, yeah, they need to show up. There are signs that this offense is starting to click. Everyone on both teams have a little time to recuperate.

When it comes down to it, you line up you're best of 53 and play pro ball.

I can understand that, and last Sunday I was as mad at the Texans as I have ever been, other than the MNF disaster last year. But at the end of the game, we won. We beat Indy. We came from way down to beat Wash.

I am not happy with the team, and have lots of concern going forward, but right now I am going to be an optimist and have faith in my team. I can do nothing else without making myself and everyone around me (and probably most of the members of this board) miserable.

We are on our bye week. This is the time of rejuvenation and renewed hopes.

Plenty of time for gloom and doom thought later, like when it is actually deserved. After all, irregardless :D of how bad they have been on defense and inconsistent overall, we do have a winning record after 6 games for the first time ever. We are in 1st place in the division and as of right now, hold all the tie-breakers.

If things go to shit later, we can be mad for a long time. I can be glad for right now, just because I can.

Speaking of Dallas Clark:

“He’s such an integral part of what they do,” Texans director of pro personnel Brian Gardner said. “They do so many different things with him, it’s difficult for me to see them replacing his contribution.”

Honestly, we really weren't expected to beat the colts to open the season, we sure the heck weren't supposed to beat the Redskins or Chiefs the way they controlled the bulk of the game. Given this, that's why we play the games. I think we have a great chance to beat the colts since we will be seeking Natl. attention and validation and we will be rested and typically game plan very well lately for the colts. :fans::fans: **their injuries do favor the Texans in a close game**

Add Anthony Gonzalez to the list

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=5722887&campaign=rss&source=NFLHeadlines



Indianapolis Colts (http://espn.go.com/nfl/team/_/name/ind/indianapolis-colts) receiver Anthony Gonzalez (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=10476), who is being counted on to help replace Austin Collie (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=12561), who recently underwent thumb surgery and will likely miss a few weeks, recently tweaked the high ankle sprain that he had been nursing since early in the season, according to a source familiar with the situation.

It does not appear to be a major injury at this time, but it is notable considering what the Colts receivers have gone through in recent days. Besides the injury to Collie, the Colts also lost Dallas Clark (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=4482) for the season when the tight end was placed on injured reserve with a wrist injury.

Gonzalez might not be ready to play as soon as Indianapolis would like and it could be the latest setback for a wide receiver that has had plenty of them the past two seasons.

Don't know how much this will really change things.

According to ESPN's Chris Mortensen, Anthony Gonzalez (ankle) will be "ready" to go for Monday Night Football.

The Colts didn't issue an injury report on Wednesday, but it sounds like Gonzalez's reported high ankle sprain aggravation was very minor in nature. Gonzalez hasn't played a full game since the 2008 season.link (http://nbcsports.msnbc.com/id/39878985/ns/sports-player_news/)

Colts missing Joseph Addai, Donald Brown at practicePosted PFT by Gregg Rosenthal on October 28, 2010 8:04 PM ET
Third-year Colts running back Mike Hart may just get his first NFL start on Monday Night Football.

Joseph Addai (shoulder) and Donald Brown (knee) both missed practice Thursday for the Colts as the team fully got back to work after their bye week. Addai is considered a longshot to play, but there was hope Brown could return this week.

ESPN's Adam Schefter says there is a "real chance" Brown plays this week. The second year back did not speak to reporters Thursday.

Elsewhere on the Colts injury report, Anthony Gonzalez was a full participant in practice. It looks like he's finally back back from his ankle sprain. Pierre Garcon missed work with a hamstring injury.

Also out for Indy: wideout Austin Collie (hand), linebacker Kavell Conner (foot), wide receiver Pierre Garcon (hamstring), defensive tackle Antonio Johnson (knee), cornerback Jacob Lacey (foot), cornerback Jerraud Powers (foot), and safety Bob Sanders (biceps).

That's an awfully banged up team considering they are coming off a bye.

That last statement is pretty funny...........if you're not on the receiving end.:texflag:

In 2006, the Colts went 11-1 with Clark in the lineup. When he went down with a knee injury, the Colts finished the season 1-3, although a lot of the blame fell on the porous run defense, which got shredded by Houston and Jacksonville. When Clark came back for the postseason -- thank heaven for medical second opinions -- the Colts didn't exactly light up the scoreboard, but Clark was their best weapon on the way to a Super Bowl title.

"It's going to be different than 2006 because we've literally seen a change in the way teams defend Dallas now," Manning said. "Since he's established himself as such a threat in the slot, at tight end, in the backfield, he's become even more versatile. The last four years, teams are using nickel, using dime, double-teaming him with a defensive end and a linebacker; we just didn't see it back then.

"Now the real question is, 'Do they continue to do those kinds of things or do they totally change what they do?' Dallas has just been so awesome, he's made defenses think a lot more."

We've already seen how different the Colts looked in 2006 when they lost Clark for a month.

Two more random examples:

In 2007, the Baltimore Ravens were 3-3 when they lost tight end Todd Heap. They went 2-8 down the stretch without him. (There were extenuating circumstances, but the numbers are instructive.)

The Green Bay Packers opened this season 3-1 and averaged 26 points per game with emerging tight end star Jermichael Finley. In the three games he has missed, they've gone 1-2 and averaged 17.7 points. (Again, some extenuating circumstances; the Packers lost their running back and several other key players.)

This won't all be about Manning, although he's always at the center of things.

Gonzalez needs to come back with a strong performance and re-stake his claim as part of the team's long-term future. The defense has to step up and consistently take more ownership of a team whose offense has been wracked by injuries. And the offensive line, which has improved markedly since that opening-game mess in Houston, has to play its best game of the season in run and pass blocking.

There also can't be any slippage in special teams, an area that tends to suffer the trickle-down effects of front-line injuries. There's no punter/kickoff man/holder Pat McAfee -- and his suspension now makes more sense with the knowledge that coach Jim Caldwell laid down the law on off-field shenanigans right before McAfee's late-night swim.

Sources: Joseph Addai likely out (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=5740052&campaign=rss&source=NFLHeadlines)

Running backs Joseph Addai and Donald Brown did not practice Thursday for the Colts.

Addai is nursing a shoulder injury sustained in Week 5 against the Kansas City Chiefs. He probably won't play when the Colts host the Houston Texans on Monday night, sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

Brown, who has not played since Sept. 26 against the Broncos because of a hamstring injury, is close to returning, sources told Schefter.





Notice how the headline doesn't match the Text. An also note how, as Nitro
points out, Caldwell is playing out "the game" to the end, despite the fact that "the end" is inevitable...........almost.:




REPORT: COLTS JOSEPH ADDAI OUT, DONALD BROWN IN FOR MONDAY NIGHT (http://leeinks.weei.com/sports/2010/10/29/report-colts-joseph-addai-out-donald-brown-in-for-monday-night) 10.29.10 at 3:14 pm ET
By Nick Traicoff

According to ESPN insider Adam Schefter, who joined the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning (listen to the interview here), the Colts running back position is in just as much flux as the receivers.

Schefter reports that Joseph Addai is likely to miss Monday’s contest against the Texans with a shoulder injury. Addai was originally hurt in Week 5 against the Chiefs, but the shoulder was re-aggravated the following week against the Redskins. Addai was putting up his best numbers of the year (17 carries, 128 yards, one touchdown) before exiting the game.

Earlier on Thursday, Colts coach Jim Caldwell told reporters that Addai’s tolerance for pain is “unusual,” while adding, “He can turn it around in a moment’s notice. It’s a day to day situation.” So while he remains unlikely to go, Addai can’t be ruled out entirely yet.

Meanwhile, Donald Brown, who has been out since Sept. 26 because of a hamstring injury, is expected to return soon, according to Schefter. If he too can’t go, the coaching staff has expressed full confidence in second-year back Mike Hart to carry a heavy workload.

These players may or may not see the field this Monday. But with their type of injuries, I don't expect to "recognize" them. And would not be surprised if they suffered reinjury if they try to go full bore.

I remember watching the Colts injury reports last year. Minor hamstrings were routinely labelled "probable". Hamstrings are very unpredictable and are only tested "under fire." High ankle sprains are hard to come back from quickly........AJ is still not able to cut quickly. With so many players out and injured, I suspect that Caldwell is playing his best game..........with the injury list, that is.
